Few restrictions have been placed on candidates for the position since the band is open to all University students. How ever, former drum major, Carl Allen, stated that they “should not be rising juniors or seniors.” According to Allen, some knowledge of music and physical agility are virtual ly essential. Persons wishing to audition should come prepared to “show what they know,” Allen said. I An important announcement to every student in the health professions: NEW SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY. THEY COVER TUITION AND RELATED COSTS AND PROVIDE AN ANNUAL INCOME OF $5,300 AS WELL If a steady salary of $400 a month and paid-up tuition will help you continue your professional training, the scholarships just made pos sible by the Uniformed Services Health Professions Revitalization Act of 1972 deserve your close attention. Because if you are now in a medical, osteopathic, dental, veterinary, podiatry, or op tometry school, or are work ing toward a PhD in Clinical Psychology, you may qualify. We make it easy for you to complete your studies.You’ve commissioned as an officer as soon as you enter the pro gram, but remain in student status until graduation. And, during each year you will be on active duty (with extra pay) for 45 days. Naturally, if your academic schedule requires that you remain on campus, you stay on campus —and still receive your active duty pay. Active duty requirements are fair. Basically, you serve one year as a commissioned officer for each year you’ve participated in the program, with a two year minimum. You may apply for a scholar ship with either the Army, Navy or Air Force, and know that upon entering active duty you’ll have rank and duties in keeping with your professional training. The life’s work you’ve cho sen for yourself requires long. hard, expensive training. Now we are in a position to give you some help.
